Berkeley, CA: Home of the Hypocrites

I lived in the Bay Area for a little more than 17 years. Those 17 years provided plenty of time to explore the Left, fully understand that mentality, yes... even to briefly become a Leftist... and finally come to my senses and get the hell out of there! Thank God for the sanity of the Right side of this country!

The most vile and hypocritical thing about Leftists is that they claim to have "open minds," to speak out against bigotry, and to protect the "choices" of free citizens. None of which is actually true. In actuality, most of the passionate Leftists you'll ever meet have very narrow views of the world; they speak out only against perceived bigotry while leaving actual bigotry buried in their "groupspeak;" and, the only choices they protect are those with which they agree.

And so, yet again, the Left rears its ugly head in all its glorious hypocrisy. Berkeley, California, well known as the locus of Leftist hatred for the military, has managed to stir up a hornet's nest with the City Council's request that the Marine Recruiting Station leave their "fair" city while securing a parking space in front of said station for Code Pink protestors. Verbatim from the letter itself: [the Marines' Shattuck Avenue recruiting station] "is not welcome in the city, and if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome intruders."

The short version of this story is that the Mayor of Berkeley, Tom Bates (see his "pretty in pink" photo here), along with the Berkeley City Council have made it clear in a letter to the Marine Corps that their recruiting station in Berkeley is not welcome. In response, one of our nation's greatest Conservatives, Senator Jim Demint, gathered Congressional support for penalizing Berkeley's actions by withholding earmarked federal funds from the city (the Semper Fi Act of 2008). This prompted Berkeley's Code-Pinko Mayor to "apologize." And, believe me, this is as close to an apology as you'll ever read/hear from any true Leftist.

Expect a large turnout from Move America Forward in support of the Marines tomorrow. Shout a "U-S-A!" for me too, Move America Forward. I can't be there but I'll certainly be there with you all in spirit!!
